Oh the horror! Please march for their human rights!?

Two Easyjet passengers were removed from an overbooked flight and not offered compensation a day after a United Airlines passenger was dragged off a plane in the US.

The British couple were due to fly from Luton Airport to Catania in Sicily on Monday last week.

After boarding the aircraft they were asked to leave by staff because the plane had been overbooked.

Easyjet has apologised and blamed human error for the situation.
The two passengers, who had booked non-refundable accommodation in Italy, were told that the next available Easyjet flight was four days later.

The airline failed to tell them they were entitled to a flight the same day with another airline, or to compensation as stipulated under EU rules.

So OP has 'imagined' that people should protest about this - and is moaning about the imagined absurdity of this imagined protest. Is this the matrix or something ?

exactly, put down the leftover lamb and east eggs and start marching.

What a weird angle you've decided to take oO The article mentions nothing about protesting?

The two people will obviously feel hard done by as they've now got 4 days knocked off their holiday which they paid for due to Easyjet's incompetence. You're acting like you wouldn't be peed off if your hard earned holiday was cut short by four days by no fault of your own...

I find a combination of Bose noise cancelling earphones, red wine and valium help enormously with that issue. I managed a 8hr flight sat next to a screaming kid and wasn't disturbed.

dave you still in the huff after the united airlines thread?

I may be oblivious to the obvious here, but here goes anyway...

1. How do they determine who is the overbooked passenger/s?.
2. If the passengers have already sat down on the plane, then there was room for them in the first place?.

I'm quite sure BA also has 'issues' from time-to-time X)

What's really shocking is that some sad do hasn't started up a campaign to get everyone in social media land to sign their crappy electronic petition that would surely make everything alright again .?
